MOSCOW, June 20 – The host of the Match TV channel and PR agent for Russian tennis players Daria Kasatkina and Andrei Rublev Sofya Tartakova criticized the show “There is a theme!”.
Earlier, Kasatkina and Rublev, in an interview published on the YouTube channel of journalist Viktor Kravchenko, said that they could change sports citizenship if the Russians were suspended from all tournaments. Kasatkina also admitted to non-traditional sexual orientation. During the release of “There’s a theme!” tennis players have been criticized for their stance.

“There is a theme!” – a freak show for tongue-tied deputies, pseudo-experts and people who are looking for five-minute fame. For a whole hour on the air of the channel where I have been working since the day of its foundation, they poured shit on my players – Kasatkina and Rublev. Anton Anisimov, no one is afraid of you, because you are small and weak. You have nothing to do with sports. I disdain to take part in this farce, so I did not come to the program. “Congratulations” to my TV channel, which lost interviews of top tennis players in one hour. None of the current players will be able to communicate with Match TV anymore. Was it worth it?” Tartakova wrote on social networks.

“I asked the management to protect the athletes and warned of the consequences. They didn’t listen to me. I want to apologize to the guys who were hurt by this program. “There is a topic!” Has nothing to do with worthy sports journalists. I ask my colleagues to change their minds and not take part in this horror Is that how you see your work? Leave this swamp with its inhabitants, “added Sophia.
“Match TV”, you let me down. I am very proud of Andrey and Dasha. Working with you is a real gift. I’m sorry I didn’t save it. I am ashamed and hurt that you were offended. I am on your side. And “There is a theme!” – a dirty and dried stain, which sooner or later will fall off by itself,” the TV presenter concluded.
In early March, the International Tennis Federation (ITF) suspended the membership of the Russian Tennis Federation and the Belarusian Tennis Federation, tennis players from these countries were suspended from participating in the Billie Jean King Cup and the Davis Cup. Russian athletes have the right to take part in WTA and ATP tournaments in a neutral status.
